Toney Stars As Brentford Win At Wolves

Posted by

With a convincing victory over Wolves at Molineux, Brentford earned their first Premier League road win. With a well-struck Ivan Toney penalty in the first half, the newly promoted London side, who arrived in the West Midlands with an unblemished away record, took the lead.

After shrugging off a challenge from Max Kilman, the Bees forward turned provider, finding strike partner Bryan Mbeumo at the back post for his first top-flight goal.

Wolves, who have failed to score in their first three league defeats at home, failed to record a shot on target despite having more possession in the West Midlands sunshine.

The physicality and pace of Adama Traore posed a constant danger, and replacement Hwang Hee-chan impressed on only his second appearance, but manager Bruno Lage will be concerned about his side’s lack of cutting edge.

The only downside for Brentford was the dismissal of Shandon Baptiste after he hauled down Francisco Trincao after losing control, five minutes after receiving his first yellow card.

Thomas Frank’s team moves up to ninth in the table and will face Liverpool in their next league match, while Wolves drop to 14th with a trip to Southampton on the horizon.
